    OK so here I am, digging through the before and after pics and thinking to myself... "Geeze... Most of these people already looked good BEFORE they went Primal!"

    Of course, I'm 6'4" and started this cut the carbs thing at 360 lbs. or there abouts... About 4 weeks later I weighed in at 348 and really I'd only been doing the low carb/no carb thing for about 3 weeks.

    I'm more following the Protein Power plan than the PB plan for now and I haven't gone with organic meat yet because of the expense in the sudden shift from cheap/inexpensive carb based foods like beans, rice, pasta... But it's on the agenda.

    All of that to say, I would really appreciate some success stories from people like me, who were far in to the 'obese' category and have pulled themselves out. My estimated body fat at 360 was about 40%. I haven't checked my numbers/measurements again since then but I am doing so sometime this week.

    Maybe you don't want to post this sort of "I was actually REALLY fat and now I'm not" message in a public forum. I can understand that. But if you are willing, I would find it really hope-bringing.

    I was 397 at 5'8" when I started, and in a year and a half I've dropped over 100 pounds of body fat (118 according to my doctor) and gained 25 pounds of muscle - current scale weight is about 306 and current BF% is about 26 (compared to over 50% a year and a half ago).

    Yes, you can do this. I'm still heavy, but nowhere near what I used to be.
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Holy Christ, I have that exact same outfit as Rivvan in his 2007 picture (minus the hat and dog), and started at about the same weight. So in four years I will look like Rivvin...damn, this PBP is the stuff of miracles.
